Said to have remained in California up until 2019, this 1979 Porsche 911SC Coupe underwent a sympathetic overhaul with RS-style modifications and its original Light Blue Metallic paint color. It features custom-finished wheels, lightweight RS trim, leather Rally GT seats, lowered suspension, and a 915 manual transmission with a limited-slip differential. It had been under the care of a PCA member in Kentucky for the past 3 years and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
This Coupe wears its factory-specified color of Light Blue Metallic (301) and rides on a set of Fuchs wheels in a custom RS-style finish, sized 16”x7” in front and 16”x8” in the rear. A set of new Nankang tires was mounted in 2021 and the seller describes some paint chips and signs of road-going wear on the front end. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The interior was redone by Coach Craft of Kentucky in 2021 with new RS-style carpeting, door panels, and Rally GT seats in black leather from Classic Touring Seats of San Francisco. The air-conditioning and radio have been removed, and a three-spoke 930 Turbo steering wheel has been fitted. The original seats, steering wheel, and door panels will accompany the sale.
An air-cooled 3.0L flat-six engine drives the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. The car was lowered and aligned to European specifications by Foreign Affairs Autowerks in 2020 including the installation of new shocks and struts, sway bar bushings and end links, heat exchangers, exhaust, and oil cooler lines. A corresponding invoice is provided in the gallery.
This sale will include the original interior pieces, owner’s manuals, service records, and a clean title. The original California emissions smog equipment has been removed and is not included.
